The City is Nature Too

"If we define nature as wild animals and plants, forests and rivers and mountains — everything out there — then we set humankind and its works apart, and that is a damaging illusion. If we define nature as the whole evolving cosmos, with us as a part of it, that comes closer to the truth, but it creates a dilemma for ethics." - Scott Russell Sanders in Terrain
